How would you define the word LEGACY? Immediately what comes to mind for me is the song “Only Jesus” by Casting Crowns. Let me take this time to share a few lyrics with you concerning this song and our subject theme for 2020.
Make it count, leave a mark, build a name for yourself
Dream your dreams, chase your heart, above all else
Make a name the world remembers
But all an empty world can sell is empty dreams
I got lost in the light when it was up to me
To make a name the world remembers
But Jesus is the only name to remember
You see, we can seek to do a lot of good things as disciples, but if in the midst of it all we do not give and lead others to remember to Jesus, what have we done? We can open doors, rake leaves, build houses, feed the poor and sit with the sick; but if we do not intentionally give them and lead them to remember Jesus, what have we done? Let’s choose to be a people who is more about doing good things, but let’s choose today to be a people that leads others to remember the only name to remember.
Think about it. Pray about it. God bless.
